fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims that iran is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. listen to this. >> denies the holocaust, promises to wipe out israel and engages in terror throughout the world. like timothy mack say walking

, we are investigating this, closely. the f.b.i. has the lead in the investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. people were gathered outside the embassy and it grew violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which unfortunately, are quite common in post revolutionary libya. that, then, spun out-of-control attack. we will wait for the results of the investigation. we do not want to jump to conclusions before that. it is important for the american people to know our best current assessment. >>chris: the last question, terror cells in benghazi carried out five attacks since april including one at the same consulate, a bombing at this same consulate, in june. should u.s. security have been tighter at that consulate given the history of terror activity in benghazi? >>guest: obviously we did have a strong security p

this very closely. the fbi has the lead in this investigation. the information the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous rehe action to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. that people quartered outside of the emba -- people gathered outside of the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came it heavy weapons which unfortunately are quite common in post revolutionary libya and that then spun out of control. but we don't see at this point signs that this was a coordinated planned premeditated attack. obviously we will wait for the results of the investigation and we don't want to jump to conclusions before then but i do think it is important for the american people to know our best current assessment. >> chris: and the last question, terror cells in benghazi had carried out five attacks since april including one at the same consultate, a bombing at this same consultate in

consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors responded to intel information as they received it. they say the attack was a complex in situation and wasn't clear this was a terrorist attack. >> the information was arrived at and determinations were made. that was shared with the american people. i think again the focus needs to be how do we make sure our facilities and ambassadors
